Tobias Harris and the Sixers already look like a great fit

Tobias Harris and the Sixers already look like a great fit

An elite starting five is nothing new for the Philadelphia 76ers. In 2017-18, their starters had the best net rating (plus-21) of any five-man lineup with at least 300 minutes played. For the bulk of this season, Ben Simmons, JJ Redick, Jimmy Butler, Wilson Chandler, and Joel Embiid adjusted on the fly and still ranked sixth among five-man groups with at least 200 minutes at plus-13. Now, the era of Tobias Harris (and terrible nicknames) has begun. It’s no surprise the Sixers already seem to be going up a gear. Through four games and 73 minutes for the new starting five, their net rating...

Sixers v. Celtics: Preview and Game Info

No Kyrie for the Celtics. No excuse to lose this game. (Cues theme song to WWE’s tag team “The New Day”.) It is a new day, but the Philadelphia 76ers aren’t fueled by “Pancake Power”. They have been fueled by the additions of “Bobi & Tobi” as well as other additions Mike Scott, Jonathon Simmons, and James Ennis. The Sixers have won two in a row since the Clippers trade that brought Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic, and Mike Scott to South Philadelphia. The team struck gold against the Denver Nuggets on Friday night – beating the #2 team in the Western Conference, 117-110....

Thoughts on the JJ Redick-Tobias Harris pairing, Jimmy Butler defending Kyle Lowry, and remaining schedules for the Eastern Conference elite Whew. What a week for the Philadelphia 76ers.

76ers fans please welcome Mike Scott, your new Threegional Manager

Since we had to say goodbye to Corey “The Drunken Dribbler” Brewer when the team let him go, we’re lucky that there is now a new awesome nickname in town: Mike “The Threegional Manager” Scott, a play off of Regional Manager Michael Scott of ABC’s The Office played by Steve Carell. Tobias Harris is the big headliner for the Sixers from last week’s trade deadline. That’s going about as well as GM Elton Brand could have hoped for now two games into Harris’ tenure with Philadelphia. And Boban Marjanović, being 7’3 and really likable, is going to soak up the...
